Some Good Old Fashioned Easter Fun

Jesus is Risen! That is the reason we celebrate Easter. I am so thankful that he is preparing a place in Heaven for me because He is my Lord and Savior. The gift He gives of eternal life gives me such a peace that I hold on to daily.
We celebrated at church and in our backyard with a good ole' Easter Egg hunt. We hid 240 eggs. I think we went a bit overboard because I found an egg today that we had missed. The dog had found it and had eaten the candy out of it. Oops! I'm sure the lawn mower will find some more.

These are the eggs we dyed.
My kids getting creative with the colors.

Makenna running to get eggs. I love watching them run around and find the eggs!My kids and my two nieces after the hunt.
I made some deviled eggs with the eggs we dyed. This was my first time making them!

Me and my little easter bunny at my mom's house. This is his first easter.

My mom and her grandkids. I appreciate her more and more everyday. I did not realized how hard this mom thing is!

My three munchkins.
